My area of expertise is with children and youth, and their parents.  Sometimes this involves separate work with parents, and sometimes with the whole family.  This is the work that I have done, in one form or another, for the past 40 years.

More recently, I have completed extensive training in the treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).  This service now represents the largest part of my work. I have found that it is often best to provide this service on an outreach basis.

Sometimes, in my work with a child or adolescent, it becomes clear that a 'learning style' problem explains other concerns such as a behaviour problem, or anxiety, or both.  In this case, I am able to conduct a brief (screening) psycho-educational assessment.

 I have also worked extensively with children with sexual behaviour problems, or what are sometimes called 'abuse-reactive' behaviours. This knowledge is often useful for foster or adoptive parents.

I also work extensively with and consult with Dr. Michael Lloyd.  Dr. Lloyd and I will often be co-therapist with couples who are working out parenting strategies during a divorce process.  Dr. Lloyd, a psychotherapist, is experienced in couples counselling and several other areas, including, especially, pain management. 

I work mostly in the Surrey, White Rock, and Langley area, although many of my clients come into my Langley office from Abbottsford.
